Why Should I Cook Appetizers in My Air Fryer?

Air fryers take just about any food and helps crisp them up. Even frozen foods come our crispier without drying them out than in the traditional oven.

Air fryer food is also cooked without or with just a little oil, making them much healthier than they would be when deep-fried.

A bigger air fryer, like the Cosori 6.8QT Dual Blaze (like I use) or the Cuisinart Air Fryer Oven allows you to cook a large number of food than you can with a smaller air fryer. You can even cook two appetizers at the same time using a rack!
